    My husband would like to reuse the MagicBand from our previous trip when his account was managed by me. This time, he set up his own MyDisney account and linked it to mine. Now, the band is saying it is already claimed. Is it possible to reactivate it?

    Hi Miranda, welcome to planDisney! 

    Once a Disney band (also known as MagicBand or MagicBand+) has been linked to a guest it cannot be registered to another guest. However, since your husband is switching from a My Disney Experience account managed by you to his own My Disney Experience account, he may be able to maintain the use of the Disney band. Your husband will need to merge his former account with his new account. To merge his accounts, you will need to log in to your My Disney Experience account and visit your Family & Friends List. Find your husband’s profile and click “Update.” Then select “Share plans with this guest” and enter your husband’s email address that he uses to log in to his new My Disney Experience account. 

    Your husband should receive an email inviting him to share planning with you. Once he accepts, the information from his old account managed by you should merge with his new personal account. He should see his Disney band listed in his “My MagicBands and Cards” if he is on the Walt Disney World Resort website, or under “MagicBands and More” in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    If you have any issues following these steps, I recommend calling and speaking to a Cast Member for assistance. You can call the number listed under “My Disney Experience Experience and MagicBands.”

    I hope these instructions were helpful, Miranda. I would like to remind you and your husband that there is a wide variety of Disney band designs to choose from on your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any future planning questions, please visit me again at planDisney!
